We will Bring from Every Nation a Witness, and they will be Separated into Categories on the Right Hand and on the Left

If he was of the Companions of the Right, then he will be Among the Companions of the Garden; but the Companions of the Left - those are the Companions of the Fire

39:69 - 70, Qur'an
[So warn of the Day when] the earth will shine with the light of its Lord, and the record [of deeds] will be placed, and the prophets and the witnesses will be brought, and it will be judged between them in truth, and they will not be wronged.
  And every soul will be fully compensated [for] what it did; and He is most knowing of what they do.

4:41, Qur'an
So how [will it be on the Day of Judgement] when We bring from every nation a witness and We bring you [O Muhammad], against these [people] as a witness?

Matthew 25:33, Gospel
[And We will resurrect Jesus, the Son of man, as a witness over his nation,] and he will set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left -

99:6, Qur'an
[For] that Day, the people will depart separated [into categories] to be shown [the result of] their deeds.

56:8 - 9, Qur'an
Then the companions of the right, what are the companions of the right?
 And the companions of the left, what are the companions of the left? -

56:42, Qur'an
[They will be] in scorching fire and scalding water -

2:81, Qur'an
[For] whoever earns evil and his sin has encompassed him - those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide therein eternally.

56:90 - 91, Qur'an
[But] if he was of the companions of the right,
then [the angels will say], "Peace for you; [you are] from the companions of the right -"

46:14, Qur'an
Those are the companions of the Garden, abiding eternally therein as reward for what they used to do.

25:24, Qur'an
The companions of the Garden, that Day, are [in] a better settlement and better resting place.


Sections of Two Ways


The Companions of the Right are those who Believed and Advised One Another to Compassion

So as for he who is Given his Record in his Right Hand, he will be Among the Companions of the Garden

59:20, Qur'an
Not equal are the companions of the Fire and the companions of the Garden. The companions of the Garden- they are the successful -

46:16, Qur'an
Those are the ones from whom We will accept the best of what they did and overlook their misdeeds, [their being] among the companions of the Garden. [That is] the promise of truth which they had been promised -

17:71, Qur'an
[It will be on] the Day [when] We will call forth every people with their leader.  [Whereby] whoever is given his record in his right hand - those will read their records, and injustice will not be done to them, [even] as much as a thread [inside a date seed].

69:19  - 21, Qur'an
So as for he who is given his record in his right hand, he will say, "Here, read my record!
  Indeed, I was certain that I would be meeting my account."  So he will be in a pleasant life - 

Matthew 25:34, Gospel
[For] the king will say to those on his right hand, "Come, those blessed of my [Creator], inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungered, and you gave me meat; I was thirsty and you gave me drink; I was a stranger and you took me in."

Matthew 25:37, Gospel
Then the righteous will answer him, saying, "Master, when did we see you hungry, and feed [you]?  Or thirsty, and gave [you] drink?"

Matthew 25:40, Gospel
And the king will answer and say to them, "Verily I say to you, inasmuch as you have done [it] to one of the least of these my brothers, you have done [it] to me."

76:8 - 12, Qur'an
[And thus,] they [are those who] give food in spite of love for it to the needy, the orphan, and the captive,
[saying], "We feed you only for the Countenance of God.  We wish not from you reward or gratitude.  Indeed, we fear from our Lord a Day austere and distressful."  So God will protect them from the evil of that Day and give them radiance and happiness and will reward them for what they patiently endured [with] a garden [in Paradise] and silk [garments].

76:20 - 22, Qur'an
And when you look there [in Paradise], you will see pleasure and a great kingdom.
Upon the inhabitants will be green garments of fine silk and brocade. And they will be adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Lord will give them a purifying drink. [It will be said], "Indeed, this is for you a reward, and your effort has been appreciated."

[Wisdom of Solomon 5:15 - 16], Torah
[And thus] the righteous live forevermore; their reward is also with the Lord, and the care of them is with the Most High.
  Therefore they will receive a glorious kingdom, and a beautiful crown from the Lord’s hand: for with His right hand, He will cover them, and with His arm, He will protect them.

90:10 - 18, Qur'an
[So] have [We] shown him the two ways?
 But he has not attempted the steep path.  And what can make you know what the steep path is?  It is the freeing of a slave, or feeding on a day of severe hunger - an orphan of near relationship or a needy person in misery.  And then being among those who believed and advised one another to patience and advised one another to compassion.  Those are the companions of the right.


They who Disbelieved in Our Signs, those are the Companions of the Left

So as for he who is Given his Record in his Left Hand, those will be Companions of the Fire

84:6 - 9, Qur'an
O mankind, indeed you are laboring toward your Lord with [great] exertion and will meet it.
 Then as for he who is given his record in his right [hand], then soon he will be reckoned with an easy account and return to his people in happiness.

90:19 - 20, Qur'an
But they who disbelieved in Our signs - those are the companions of the left.
  Over them will be fire closed in.

56:41, Qur'an
And [so] the companions of the left - what are the companions of the left? -

Matthew 25:41 - 43, Gospel
[The king] will say also to those on the left hand, "Depart from me, you cursed into everlasting Fire, prepared for the devil and his [followers].
 For I was hungry, and you gave me no meat, I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink.  I was a stranger, and you did not take me in, naked, and you did not clothe me, sick, and in prison, and you did not visit me."

Matthew 25:44, Gospel
Then they will also answer him, saying, "Master, when did we see you hungry, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to you?"

89:17 - 20, Qur'an
[But] no!  You do not honor the orphan.
  You do not encourage one another to feed the poor.  And you consume inheritance, devouring [it] altogether, and you love wealth with immense love.

Matthew 25:45 - 46, Gospel
[And thus] he will answer them, saying, "Verily I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do [it] to one of the least of these, you did not do [it] to me."
 [And so] these will go away into everlasting punishment -

107:6 - 7, Qur'an
[The ones] who make show [of their deeds]
and withhold [simple] assistance.

56:45 - 46, Qur'an
[And] indeed they were, before that, indulging in affluence,
and they used to persist in the great violation.

16:24, Qur'an
And [those who,] when it is said to them, "What has your Lord sent down?"  They say, "Legends of the former peoples."

11:21 - 22, Qur'an
- Those are the ones who will have lost themselves, and lost from them is what they used to invent.
 Assuredly, it is they in the Hereafter who will be the greatest in loss -

2:39, Qur'an
[For] those who disbelieve and deny Our signs - those will be companions of the Fire; they will abide therein eternally.

69:25 - 29, Qur'an
[And thus,] as for he who is given his record in his left hand, he will say, "Oh, I wish I had not been given my record
and had not known what is my account.  I wish my death had been the decisive one.  My wealth has not availed me.  Gone from me is my authority."

69:30 - 31, Qur'an
[God will say], "Seize him and shackle him.
Then into Hellfire drive him."


The Book of the Righteous is in 'Illiyyun - it is a Written Book

And the Book of the Wicked is in Sijjeen - it is a Written Book

82:13 - 14, Qur'an
Indeed, the righteous will be in pleasure,
and indeed, the wicked will be in Hellfire.

38:28, Qur'an
Or should We treat those who believe and do righteous deeds like corrupters in the land?  Or should We treat those who fear [God] like the wicked?

83:7 - 10, Qur'an
No!  Indeed, the Book of the wicked is in sijjeen [imprisonment].
 And what can make you know what is sijjeen [imprisonment]?  It is a written Book.  Woe, that Day, to the deniers -

Psalms 69:27 - 28, Torah
Add iniquity to their iniquity, and let them not come into Your righteousness.
Let them be blotted out of the Book of the Living, and not be written with the righteous.

Revelation 20:15, Gospel
And [thus] whoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of Fire.

Malachi 3:16, Torah
[But] those who feared the Lord spoke often to one another, and the Lord listened, and heard [it], and a Book of remembrance was written before Him for those who feared the Lord, and who thought upon His name -

[Shepherd of Hermas 51:9], Gospel
He then who does these things will not be abandoned of God, but will be written in the Books of the Living.

83:18 - 24, Qur'an
[So] indeed, the Book of the righteous is in 'illiyyun [highest].
 And what can make you know what is 'illiyyun [highest]?  It is a written Book which is witnessed by those brought near [to God].  Indeed, the righteous will be in pleasure on adorned couches, observing.  You will recognize in their faces the radiance of pleasure.


For Every Person We have Imposed his Fate, and We will Produce for him a Record

For All Things We have Enumerated in a Clear Book Before We Bring it into Being

27:74 - 75, Qur'an
[So] indeed, your Lord knows what their breasts conceal and what they declare.
  And there is nothing concealed within the heaven and the earth except that it is in a clear Book.

57:22, Qur'an
[And] no disaster strikes upon the earth or among yourselves except that it is in a Book before We bring it into being - indeed that, for God, is easy -

54:49, Qur'an
[For] indeed, all things We created with predestination.

17:13 - 14, Qur'an
And [thus for] every person We have imposed his fate upon his neck, and We will produce for him on the Day of Resurrection a record which he will encounter spread open.
  [It will be said], "Read your record.  Sufficient is yourself against you this Day as accountant."

45:28 - 29, Qur'an
And [thus] you will see every nation kneeling [from fear].  Every nation will be called to its record [and told], "Today you will be recompensed for what you used to do.
  This, Our record, speaks about you in truth.  Indeed, We were having transcribed whatever you used to do."

18:49, Qur'an
And [so] the record [of deeds] will be placed [open], and you will see the criminals fearful of that within it, and they will say, "Oh, woe to us!  What is this book that leaves nothing small or great except that it has enumerated it?"  And they will find what they did present [before them].  And your Lord does injustice to no one.

34:3, Qur'an
But those who disbelieve say, "The Hour will not come to us."  Say, "Yes, by my Lord, it will surely come to you.  [God is] the Knower of the unseen."  Not absent from Him is an atom's weight within the heavens or within the earth or [what is] smaller than that or greater, except that it is in a clear Book -

[Book of Enoch 98:6 - 8], Torah
[And thus] I swear to you, you sinners, by the Holy and Great One, that all your evil deeds are revealed in heaven and that your wrongdoing is not covered or hidden.
  And do not think in your spirit or say in your heart, that you do not know, or do not see, every sin is written down every day in heaven in front of the Most High.  From now on, you know that all your wrongdoing that you do will be written down every day, until the Day of your Judgement -

58:6, Qur'an
The Day when God will resurrect them all and inform them of what they did. God had enumerated it, while they forgot it; and God is, over all things, Witness.


Enter in at the Strait Gate, for Wide is the Gate that Leads to Destruction

But Narrow is the Way which Leads to Life, and there are Few who Find it, for Most of them are Disbelievers

32:13, Qur'an
If We had willed, We could have given every soul its guidance, but the word from Me will come true [that] "I will surely fill Hell with jinn and people all together."

Matthew 7:13 - 14, Gospel
[And thus, Jesus said,] "Enter in at the strait gate, for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in there,
 because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads to life, and there are few who find it."

Luke 13:23, Gospel
[And so] one said to him, "Master, are there few who are saved?"

[2 Ezra 8:1], Torah
And he answered me, saying, "The Most High has made this world for many, but the world to come, for few."

Matthew 22:14, Gospel
For many are called, but few [are] chosen.

[2 Ezra 9:15 - 16], Torah
[And thus] I have said before, and now do speak, and will speak it also hereafter, that there are many more of those who perish, than of those who will be saved;
 as a wave is greater than a drop.

12:103, Qur'an
And [so] most of the people, although you strive [for it], are not believers.

10:99 - 101, Qur'an
[But] had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed - all of them entirely.  Then, would you compel the people in order that they become believers?
  And it is not for a soul to believe except by permission of God, and He will place defilement upon those who will not use reason.  Say, "Observe what is in the heavens and earth."  But of no avail will be signs or warners to a people who do not believe -

43:78, Qur'an
[For] We had certainly brought you the truth, but most of you, to the truth, were averse.

40:59, Qur'an
[For] indeed, the Hour is coming - no doubt about it - but most of the people do not believe -

50:30, Qur'an
The Day We will say to Hell, "Have you been filled?" and it will say, "Are there some more?"

Isaiah 5:14, Torah
[And thus] Hell has enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure, and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he who rejoices, will descend into it -

11:119, Qur'an
Except whom your Lord has given mercy, and for that He created them.  But the word of your Lord is to be fulfilled that, "I will surely fill Hell with jinn and men all together."

16:82 - 83, Qur'an
[But] if they turn away, - then only upon you is [responsibility for] clear notification.
They recognize the favor of God; then they deny it. And most of them are disbelievers.


Most of them were Not to be Believers, Except a Few of those We Saved from Among them

And Thus, they will Not Believe, while there had Already Strayed Before them Most of the Former Peoples

11:116, Qur'an
So why were there not among the generations before you, those possessing what remained, forbidding corruption on earth - except a few of those We saved from among them?  But those who wronged pursued what luxury they were given therein, and they were criminals.

10:98, Qur'an
Then has there not been a [single] city that believed so its faith benefited it except the people of Jonah?  When they believed, We removed from them the punishment of disgrace in worldly life and gave them enjoyment for a time.

37:72, Qur'an
[But] there had already strayed before them most of the former peoples, and We had already sent among them warners.

51:31 - 37, Qur'an
[So remember when Abraham] said, "Then what is your business [here], O messengers?"
  They said, "Indeed, we have been sent to a people of criminals to send down upon them stones of clay, marked in the presence of your Lord for the transgressors."  So We brought out whoever was in the cities of the believers.  And We found not within them other than a [single] house of those in submission [to God].  And We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment.

26:172 - 174, Qur'an
Then We destroyed the others.
 And We rained upon them a rain [of stones], and evil was the rain of those who were warned.  Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.

11:40, Qur'an
[And so it was for Noah], until when Our command came and the oven overflowed, We said, "Load upon the ark of each two mates and your family, except those about whom the word has preceded, and [include] whoever has believed."  But none had believed with him, except a few.

26:119 - 121, Qur'an
So We saved him and those with him in the laden ark.
 Then We drowned thereafter the remaining ones.  Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.

26:123 - 124, Qur'an
[And] 'Aad denied the messengers,
when their brother Hud said to them, "Will you not fear God?

26:135, Qur'an
Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a terrible day."

26:136 - 139, Qur'an
[But] they said, "It is all the same to us whether you advise or are not of the advisors.
  This is not but the custom of the former peoples, and we are not to be punished."  And they denied him, so We destroyed them.  Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.

26:141 - 142, Qur'an
[And] Thamud denied the messengers,
when their brother Salih said to them, "Will you not fear God?"

27:49, Qur'an
[But] they said, "Take a mutual oath by God that we will kill [Salih] by night, he and his family.  Then we will say to his executor, 'We did not witness the destruction of his family, and indeed, we are truthful.'"

26:158, Qur'an
And [thus] the punishment seized them.  Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.

26:176 - 177, Qur'an
[And] the companions of the thicket denied the messengers,
when Shu'ayb said to them, "Will you not fear God?"

26:189 - 190, Qur'an
[But] they denied him, so the punishment of the day of the black cloud seized them.  Indeed, it was the punishment of a terrible day.
  Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.

10:83, Qur'an
[And] no one believed Moses, except [some] youths among his people, for fear of Pharaoh and his establishment that they would persecute them.  And indeed, Pharaoh was haughty within the land, and indeed, he was of the transgressors.

26:65 - 67, Qur'an
[So] We saved Moses and those with him, all together.
 Then We drowned the others.  Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.

17:58, Qur'an
And there is no city but that We will destroy it before the Day of Resurrection or punish it with a severe punishment.  That has ever been in the Book inscribed.

15:13, Qur'an
[But] they will not believe in it, while there has already occurred the precedent of the former peoples -

21:6, Qur'an
[For] not a [single] city which We destroyed believed before them, so will they believe?

26:6 - 8, Qur'an
For they have already denied, but there will come to them the news of that which they used to ridicule.
  Did they not look at the earth - how much We have produced therein from every noble pair?  Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.
